Corporate Bindles

A 'Bindle' is 'a bundle of possessions carried by a hobo'. Like many I have had my hobo chapters and lived nomadically with very few possessions. I like to think of it as character-building, but back to the origins of Bindle. Unlike hobos who have no prescribed boundaries, Bindle is defined with a sense of place.

I faced an ever recurring small nightmare of trying to find an inspired gift for friends and family for milestone occasions. After seeing the world becoming a lot smaller due to globalisation, and local produce becoming less and less a feature in gift purchases, Bindle was born. Bindle engages local artisans to produce Australian, hand-made, tailored gift packages. There are Bindles for every occasion and every part of the creation is Australian - the products within the Bindles; the boxes that contain them; the hand that wrapped them.

Each Bindle is a compilation of several talented individuals that brings to it his or her own personality and creativity. It’s the inter-relationships that make each Bindle unique. The artisans, farmers, families, friends, and recipients. Each experience and exchange influences the final product both in a physical and in an attitudinal one. Gifts for your friends, your family and your colleagues.

We assemble it, you take the credit.


I grew up on a property and spent my formative years clambering over sheep’s backs and fossicking in creek beds. My bedroom was awash with “creations” as I cut and pasted as if my life depended on it.
 The usual followed – school, then university which gave me a degree in Landscape Architecture, and I woke up in IT! Eating, drinking, laughing with friends and family were pivotal to my life, but there was a void.

My creative impulses were suppressed and needed an airing. This is what transpired … Sweating on finding original, tailored presents to give my friends for milestone occasions. What limited my ability to do this every time was time itself, and I found myself flying around like a chook without a head in the vain hope of finding an original gift which conveyed the sentiments behind it. Sheer despair flicked the switch on the Bindle light bulb. May the light never go out.
